About Community Giving at MIT

Community Giving at MIT is a workplace giving program within the MIT Community Services Office that focuses on local 501(c)(3) health and human service agencies. We provide MIT faculty, staff, and retirees with an opportunity to make their charitable donations via payroll deductions, check, credit card, or securities. We also host charity events and fundraisers in partnership with local agencies.

We are guided in our vision by a presidential-appointed steering committee of MIT faculty and staff, and we are supported by department ambassadors who are leaders for community giving within their academic departments.

Since the program's inception in the 1950s, we have worked to connect MIT employees with compelling charitable causes that benefit those in need in Cambridge and other local communities.
